The firm is pleased to announce publication of the article – “Copyright Law in the Age of Cloud Computing” – by Kelley C. Keller, Esq. and included in the February 2013 Issue of BusinessWoman Magazine. Cloud computing, a leading-edge technology allowing for storing and sharing data on centralized web-based servers rather than physical, has garnered significant attention in the intellectual property community owing to its unique position in relation to copyright. Due to the lack of contractual relationship between copyright owners and cloud service providers, copyright owners must rely on other methods to assert liability for infringement. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) allows for certain exemptions to infringement liability for providers, yet still leaves room for copyright owners to pursue compensation on the basis of vicarious or contributory infringement. Court rulings on infringement by cloud providers, uniquely, have favored defendants when no prior opportunities to remedy the infringement have been extended. The implication is that copyright owners must be diligent in assuring that their own works are not infringed upon, and seek relief through the DMCA’s notice and takedown system prior to litigation.
